Recommended Posts

Alright! So after a long wait, I will finally be able to see my wife after 1+ years of not seeing her in person, but Thank you Skype!

My wifes CR1 was was issued 6 days before our 2 year anniversary. Is there a way we can get a IR1 visa as our 2 year anniversary has passed. (11.12.12)
She should arrive some time early December. Will I have to just wait and file an I-751? Thank you in advance!

No, you'll just make sure that she has a copy of your marriage certificate with her (as well as the yellow envelope the embassy gave her) so when she gets to POE she points out to the immigration officer that she is arriving after her 2nd wedding anniversary so they classify her in the system as IR1.

If this doesn't happen and she gets conditional green card, she should send it back (no fee, USCIS fault) with a marriage certificate so she can get 10 yr card.

IR1 is based off your entry into the USA not based on the date it was issued. Because you've now been married for 2 years, when she enters the USA, tell her to keep her marriage certificate with her and give that AND the do not open envelope to the CBP. Make sure the designation they write in the passport is IR1.
